Record June for ACS

BROKER Air Charter Service (ACS) enjoyed the busiest month in the company’s history in June, completing more than 800 contracts.
“It’s an astounding figure,” says chief executive Justin Bowman, as the company chartered more flights in June  than it did in the whole of 2003.
“Some charter contracts consist of more than one leg and in June we flew almost 1,200 flight sectors in total: that means an ACS flight took off, on average, once every 40 minutes throughout the whole of June,” he adds.
All 18 of the company’s offices contributed, with almost every one up year-on-year for the month.
ACS’s charter numbers are currently 23 per cent up on the same stage last year, which was the company’s record year, indicating that the market is recovering across all aspects of the aircraft chartering business.
